The Harvest Collection from The DAVIDs Tea. . . .

The Harvest Collection, DAVIDsTEA’s Fall lineup of teas focuses fresh farm-to-table inspired blends. These teas have some new and exciting flavors that certainly had me intrigued. I brewed them all up hot, as per the company’s recommended steeping parameters. First up is Just Beet It, a mate blend that intends to highlight the beetroot, apple, goji, and blackberries. Personally of the five teas, this is one of two I was most worried about due to the mate base. Luckily for me, it doesn’t seem as though there is much of it among the dry leaf. Anyways, I brewed this up Read More

The Dragon! from 52Teas. . . . .

I have talked about Steepster before and I will probably mention it again as it is a large part of my tea-loving life. Recently it gave me the opportunity to not only enter but WIN a draw by 52 Teas for their monthly teabox. I lucked out even more by winning the box of their anniversary month so while they normally have 4 teas of the week in the box, my box had 5 teas to try. This tea and another tea, The Unicorn!, were both the blends made for the first week of the month and they are both Read More

Banana Maple Oatmeal from The NecessiTeas. . . .

I have a coworker that’s always wandering around the office with a bowl of oatmeal. It’s like his familiar — except it’s not a black cat. It’s food. I’m always jealous of this oatmeal. You might be asking yourself “why don’t you get yourself a bowl of oatmeal?” I’VE HAD THAT IDEA, OKAY? Whenever I try to make my own, it never, ever smells as good as his. Forget food preparation. I’m over it. I’m just going to make this tea instead. This tea comes in a packet with real oatmeal and cinnamon and brown sugar in it. My desire Read More

Cocoa Chili Pumpkin from Tiesta Tea. . .

  Tis the season for all things pumpkin and spooky.  I love this time of year.  Being a huge fan of the horror genre, I love stealing away any time I can and enjoying a scary flick or indulging myself in the latest spooky book.   And honestly, the best partner to any scary book or movie is a marvelously brewed tea possibly turned into a latte. Cocoa Chili Pumpkin has been my go to pumpkin tea for the last couple of weeks. I can’t get enough of this tea.  Typically I stay away from black flavored spicy teas.  In Read More

Enlightening Lotus from Flower Pot Tea Company. . . .

Not being a huge fan of strongly floral teas, finding the right floral tisane can be tricky.  I have issues with lavender so when ever I see a floral tea without lavender especially a tisane, I get quite excited. Enlightening Lotus is by far one of the most stunning flowering teas I’ve brewed up.  Basically this tea is one gorgeous flower.  When put in just the right tea pot, you have one stunning presentation. Simply gorgeous.  My husband even commented by how lovely the presentation of this tea was.  Pops of brilliant yellow filled my tea pot.  How can you Read More
